to try and shore up votes. that's one of president obama's key messages right now. alex, i can tell you this race here in new hampshire is essentially in a deadlock with the president holding onto a narrow lead. >> i'll tell you whether it's four electoral votes there in new hampshire or nine in colorado feels like a battle for every single one out there right now. kristen welker, thank you so much. enjoy james taylor, i might add. >>> also ahead, more on the impact hurricane sandy could have on the election. coming up in strategy talk, the comments made by one romney team surrogate still reverberating. what's behind his remarks. and it's not the first time he said something outrageous. >>> a bit later, the news room edition of office politics. i talk with several of my colleague about the what if scenarios for november 7th, the day after the election. keep it here. you're watching "weekends with alex witt." and we got onesies. sometimes miracles get messy. so we use tide free. no perfumes or dyes for her delicate skin. brad. not it. not it. just kidding. that's our tide. what's you

. >> what do you think jimmy? do you agree that the obama campaign should be worried right now? >> the obama camp should probably will not be worried. the exact same things were being said about four years ago. especially during the primaries. i just don't see -- listen. pennsylvania is a world of three different -- it's a state with three different countries in it. philly, pittsburgh, and then right down the middle of it. that's a conservative part of the state. no one expected obama to win it. . the question becomes is what's on the ends. so far, we are seeing his numbers hold up remarkably well there. so i don't think that it's going to be -- i agree with jonathan capehart, it's fool's gold. but we'll see what happens and i'm sticking with robert. probably not. >> i like that. overall, one romney adviser said it's a tied football game. there's a loose ball. is that the talk of someone who is behind? i have been asking people today, if it's tied, don't you claim to be ahead? >> if only i knew the answer. this is the question that we all watch the same polls nationally and in the batt

like to see president obama go right back to health care. and to strengthen what we've got so far. and you will always have intensified effort to create jobs in america. that's -- no matter who wins the election that will have to be the focus, but i think for president obama, i think health care again, and i think immigration. >> i don't have children, have you children. i have nieces and nephews, i want them to be able to go to college and have a great life. so our definition of the american dream, greatly varied, some people want to live on the upper east side. other people just want a nice house in the suburbs with a great school that they can send their kids to that's a public school, but i don't have to shell out 20 grand a year for kindergarten. so the american dream has many definitions, but i think whomever is elected, certainly has to build a confidence in our country again that it is attainable, not for a select few. >> i have strong views, i think the biggest problem in the history is race, we have whatever we have now, which isn't so great. we have to solve the race thing a

. right now if you're president obama's team you're more comfortable because you are looking much better in ohio. so that's a concern for team romney. that being said everyone knows this will be a really close election unless of course it's not which it could be. >> love that. morris, in 1980 ronald reagan versus jimmy carter looked neck and neck and then the race turn and broke for the challenger. from what you're hearing in democratic circles is it close enough to fear that in this election >> absolutely not. we need to keep our heads down. i'm a practitioner of this. i always run nervous and scared. all we need is 270. the democrats need not to spike the football they need to stay very focused, focused on turn out and keep their game face on even if they are feeling confident they don't need to walk into any polling booth and get on television and say that. we need to run hard. >> we have best and worst of the week coming up next. stay with us. hey sis, it's so great to see you. you, too! oh, cloudy glasses. you didn't have to come over! actually, honey, i think i did... oh? yo

night. >> you got that right. how about the obama campaign calculation, amie, on this comment about boehner and mcconnell, dog walking and car washing. the gist of all this, what's the reaction? >> well, it's something you said before. i've heard him talk about it on the campaign trail. he's basically trying to send a message that once this all happens, he will be able to work with republicans, and he'll be able to put this all behind us. he's kind of sending a signal to that everything will be all forgotten. don't think about me as a one-term president anymore, let's all be in this big kumbayah moment. >> maybe not so much. steve, we're seeing some national polls as we look at the numbers. they favor mitt romney while the president leads in some nine swing states. is it your sense that we could see the dreaded elector el popular vote split, and if so, what does that mean? >> well, i think it's very possible this time. i think one of the reasons is mitt romney could be getting really big margins in the south from texas across the south. which would roll up his popular vote. while th

presidency. and right now polls show that president obama is holding onto a modest lead here in the buckeye state. president obama made three stops here on friday. and really what was a campaign all-out blitz, two of those stops, by the way, alex, were in counties that he lost back in 2008. he's hoping to kick off some of those working-class voters. he's doing it by the auto bailout. that is something that is widely popular here that, of course, mitt romney opposed. widely popular because one out of every eight ohioans has a connection to the auto industry. president obama also touting what he called an economy that is in recovery. he referenced friday's jobs report to do it. take a listen. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned the company's hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> president obama has a frenetic campaign today straight through election day today, alex. he will make stops in wisc
